DAYS SOAPnet Promo For Programming Change: "Everyone's Dark Side Is Exposed In The Light of DAYS!"

Today, major shifts occur in all media in your viewing schedules for your favorite soaps online and on primetime!

On TV, Days of our Lives still remains on SOAPnet! But it will now take over the slot previously occupied by The Young and the Restless which debuts tonight in its new cable television same-day and date episode repeat home, TVGN. To signal the change, SOAPnet has produced a few promos for its two only remaining soaps, the other General Hospital! A far cry from a few years ago when it had five! But for now, Days of our Lives will move into the 8PMEST/PST time (7PMCST) with a repeat of the show again at 10PMEST/PST (9PMEST).   SOAPnet has just released a very cool promo for DAYS, which we think is one of their better ones with the theme and tag, “Everyone’s dark side will be exposed in the light of DAYS.”

The promo starts off with various haunting sequences from storylines and the action in Salem with the voice over announce and revealing the card titling:  “Glaring suspicions … blind jealousy … flashes of rage … all hiding in the night.   In Salem, everyone’s dark side will be exposed..  in the light of days.  ”

Watch the promo after the jump, and let us know what you thought of it?  Plus, we have posted another SOAPnet produced spot  featuring the GH and DAYS scheduling change.  So, what do you think of the new scheduling for GH and DAYS?  Will you continue to be catching them on SOAPnet?

Sadly, I won’t be watching anything on SOAPNet as my cable provider unplugged us from that station some months ago. It’s not slated to be on air much longer anyway, is it? What’ll happen with GH once SOAPNet is gone?

I will be catching up with Y&R over at the TVG channel if I miss any episodes.

Promo sounds interesting and I’ll tune in to see what it is about. Thankfully, I am still able to watch Days and GH on my local channels in the afternoon. But if anything ever changes with that, looks like I will be covered.

Liked the promo. I will watch. Right now I only watch AMC repeats. With 3 of those running 5 days a week, there is only a couple more months left. I am guessing that Soapnet will be gone after AMC and OLTL finish their repeats. Hopefully there will be more than 2 AMC shows per week from PP by then. Since Soapnet belongs to ABC, one never knows when they will pull the plug. Checking out DOOL right now. Hopefully, they have moved on from the Gabby,Will, etc. storyline.

Watch Soapnet all the time and Like the promo very much! I wanted to know what the tune is borrowed from that they are using to promote the schedule change, can anyone tell me. I think it is from a popular operetta but cannot recall it.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
